Default Re: Attention To All!

Everyone can think what they want and avoid believing it if they want...but we contacted our rep (other people have called their congressmen)...and he said- yes- if you make ANYTHING for a child under 12 you have to comply!!!!!!!! Do not sit here and listen to everyone else- GO CALL YOURSELF....then you will know for sure.
now you can try and sell these as over 12 items- but it is the CPSA who will decide if your product is marketed for the under 12 age group-NOT YOU
and the suppliers don't have to test the supplies because of one reason:
The things we buy- not for under 12-
Metal clips- for hair salons
Ribbon- for embellishments/scrapbooking...ect.
even if all the supplies are tested- YOU as a manufacturer would have to TEST the final product!
The shoe and sock thing you are talking about is not for the law which goes into effect Feb. 10 on FEB 10 IT BECOMES ILLEGAL TO SELL ANYTHING for anyone UNDER 12 without testing...

I encourage you to not believe a WORD I say- GO CALL YOUR CONGRESSMAN and your STATE REP. ask them! there is a meeting in Jan. about this law we need them to know we are worried!!!!!

I have a lawyer reading the law for me right now. I wrote CPISA asking them for the legal definition of a manufacturer, private labeler or warehouser.

I applaud you for this! We really all need to visit our own legal counsel to find the way in which it affects our own situations. A consultation might set you back a couple hundred dollars but at least you would know your responsibilities as a seller. Each business is different so you can't rely on what someone else's attorney has advised them of.

I am having a couple of main products tested (very basically for lead) so at least I can say come Feb. 10 that I have implemented a reasonable testing schedule and I can have the General Conformity Certificates. Third party testing? Too expensive for a bowmaker. Or a WAHM jewelry maker. Or a OOAK kids clothing maker. Unfortunately...

Perhaps this will change!

I copied and pasted this right from the cpsia site: Someone previous stated that apparel is tied in with this whole mess. It say right here that it is not. Hair accessories are part of apparel. They aren't covering slings either. Slings are what babies are carried in and have direct access to chew on. A hair accessory is NOT in direct chewing access. There is no way they would ban hair accessories, it's not a durable product.

Section 104: Standards and Consumer Registration of Durable
Nursery Products



Will infants’ crib bedding, blankets, bath textiles, and apparel fall under the heading of "durable product"?
No. Congress did not define the term "durable," but it is commonly understood to mean able to exist for a long time without significant deterioration. Cloth/textile items are generally not considered to be durable goods. None of the items Congress specified in section 104 as examples of durable products are items made entirely of cloth, rather they are primarily made from rigid materials (e.g., cribs, toddler beds, high chairs, strollers, bath seats).
Are baby slings covered by section 104?
No. Although Congress specified that infant carriers are covered as durable children’s products under section 104, the staff believes that baby slings are not covered but are non-durable cloth products. (Also see the above answer.)

No, it doesn't. It says all AS DEFINED BY THE CSPIA. The cspia defines all as DURABLE childrens products. Section 104 clearly exempts apparel as it is not a DURABLE children's product.
